Louis Vuitton Python Portfolio

Pre-Fall is a time to LVook at releases that were not made for the runway but will whet our appetite for things to come. In my humble opinion this Python Portfolio accomplished that beautifully! The utilitarian piece takes us up a notch in luxury due to its matte reptilian skin. The now characteristic zipper pull, which if I'm not mistaken was released in the Fall Winter of 2008-2009, adds the LV touch. I bet you will have to pay an arm and a leg to get this despite the python having none. LVoe it!!! Photo: Louis Vuitton

Lazy Sunday get together

Louis Vuitton's Current Window

As much as I enjoy LVooking forward to Vuitton releases, the windows are my second favourite. For this season, golden spools of thread create an elegant backdrop to featured items. The "embroidery" is clever and creative. If you LVook hard enough, you can see me and my Monogram Velours Irvine in the reflection. Check it out!!! LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Academy Boot

Inspired by this season's Viennese theme, this two in one boot for Men is to die for. You can actually remove the top part to use as an ankle boot. The price though is a hefty $1720. I guess it's like paying for two shoes. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Bond Street Animaux

I know that the internet was saturated with photos when the New Bond Street Store opened in London a few months back. I was more focused on the celebs and their purses then. But as I was reviewing the pics today, I became more dazzled with the taxidermy inspired window display featuring a diverse array of animals. Photos from Gwyneth Paltrow with Mouse, Fish, Owl, Otter (?) Sophia Dahl with Frog Kirsten Dunst with Rabbit Hmmm...I dunno who she is and never mind the Cobra. Take a LVook at her Monogram Guipure Carrousel. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Tutti Lucky Bracelet

After thoroughly enjoying my latest acquisition over the weekend, I decided to discover further what Louis Vuitton has in store for us in terms of accessories this coming Fall Winter season. I immediately zoomed in on the Tutti Lucky Bracelet. In Philippine lore, an elephant with a raised trunk always brings good fortune so I was thrilled to see this along with the clover and rainbow. Hmmmm...I guess the dice and casino chip are for the gamblers. Accesoires are coming our way in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled for them. LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Alligator Alma

If you have been reading my blog for quite some time now, you probably would have guessed that I have a weakness for exceptional pieces. I was surfing the net the other day and saw this iconic Alma Exotique. Crafted out of alligator skin, the piece is a luscious Havanne colour. Judging from the Code RI1906, it dates it to October of 1996. The seller claims that the purchase price was $18000 which is about right and if I only have ten grand lying around, this baby would have been my bag for this weekend. Check out the website by clicking here. LVoe it!!!

Louis Vuitton Monogram Empreinte Collection

Wow, the reaction to Louis Vuitton's Monogram Empreinte was amazing. I have been getting e-mails about them since I posted a few days back. I think a lot of people have been waiting for a luxurious leather line to succeed the Suhali and Nomade collections. Mahina was relatively popular but the embossed Monograms adds depth to the material. As of now, no prices yet but I will update as soon as information is available. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!!

Sales Associates Appreciation Day

I would like to declare the day after Louis Vuitton's birthday (at least in my blog) Sales Associates Appreciation Day. I know that I can sometimes be difficult but without all of you I would not be able to enjoy my LV's. So here's to all my associates who in one way or another have helped me. Please forgive me if I forgot anyone! I urge all my LVoe readers also to thank their SAs by posting a comment here.

Louis Vuitton" Trunks and Toys" Exhibit Manila July 15 - August 5, 2010

Owing to Louis Vuitton's birthday, I would like to inject a little whimsy in my blog. Not too long ago, LV sponsored an exhibit entitled "Trunks and Toys" in my hometown, Manila. Since I am 8,562 miles away, there was no way that I could view it. Thankfully with the advances in technology and absolutely LVoely people, the exhibit came to me which I would like to share with all of you. The toys are from the founding family, a testimony to their passion for anything to do with travel. The exhibit also includes some antique trunks that were shipped all the way from Asnières, France. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I did. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! 1889 Ostrich 1900 Lady with a wagon 1900 Lady 1920 Chinese Caddies 1920 Musical Elephant 1930 Steamer Boat 1930 Porter 1935 Aeroplane 1935 Sea Plane 1940 Lilliputian Robot 1950 Boat with Couple 1950 Space Conqueror Robot Photos from Louis Vuitton

Happy Birthday, Louis Vuitton!!!

I always consider Monsieur Louis' birthday as a special day. He was born on August 4, 1821 so that's 189 years of LVoe!

First LVook: Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Print Wallets

I still do not know the release names of these absolutely adorable Monogram Vernis print wallets, a re-interpretation of the pochette. The dominant colours though are the recently released Rouge Fauviste and the relatively older Rose Florentine. The pochette wallet now called Sarah was my first wallet from LV and I have since then stuck to that style. These highly stylized prints are making me hold off on my planned late summer purchases. LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! Photos:

Louis Vuitton Monogram Empriente

Presenting the new leather line from Louis Vuitton, the Monogram Empriente. Slated to be released on November 1st, 2010, the supple calf leather is discreetly embossed with the Monogram pattern. This will surely delight all LVoers who are interested into sumptious skins with innovative interpretations. Finished with a fine saddle stich, the pieces resonates Louis Vuitton's ideals of artisanship. And those colours!!! LVoe, LVoe, LVoe it!!! Photos from
